Triples 2010 part 2

Another participation game I spotted at Triples and which i feel is particularly worthy of a mention was the Ambush Alley game involving British troops and Taleban forces in Afghanistan.  The game was run by Richard Holden who is running it at a number of events to raise funds for The Royal British Legion.  Richard's website is here: - please visit the site and make a donation.

Richard has kindly sent me two photos of the game in progress.  It used 20mm toys.  It is pleasing to be able to report that the publishers of the rules not only supported with copied of rules etc, but also made a cash donation.

While chatting to Richard on Sunday morning at Triples he mentioned that one of their most memorable players had been a serving soldier recently returned from a tour in Helmand.  Interestingly he opted to play the Taleban.  Unluckily for him, the Brits (played by his father) made some amazing die rolls and wiped the floor with him...
